“These tunes are a little bit of what’s to come; each dipping into a different part of my life and mind, from the purely physical to the more mental and spiritual.” – Mikey Mike
The three-song project is the precursor to ‘Mikey Mike’s Life on Earth,’ a singular album release that will be his sole body of work for his entire lifetime, released in volumes and complete only upon his death.
Something you don’t know yet is the soon-to-be-released, ‘Life on Earth’ pre-rolls that Mikey created to ensure listeners would have the ultimate experience when listening to the EP. Mikey teamed up with cannabis brand Califari to create these custom pre-rolls that are one-of-a-kind, being one of the only CBD pre-rolls available. More than happy to send you one if you want to have the ultimate experience when listening to the EP too.
The music industry enigma Mikey Mike has his own way of turning the often ridiculous realities of modern human life into pure poetry backed by unusual, catchy melodies. With creative influences ranging from Kurt Cobain and 50 Cent, to Fleetwood Mac and Yogananda, Hollywood native and one-of-a-kind songwriter, Mikey Mike only draws inspiration from revolutionaries. He broke into the music industry by revolutionary means; successfully impersonating popular porn star Lacey Duvalle via email to catfish record execs into listening to his demos, which led to him winning a Grammy for Rihanna’s “Jump,” becoming underground legend in the music business, getting a major label to pay for his outrageous billboard marketing, and having his debut single, “Doin’ Me” produced by his musical hero, Rick Rubin.
The release of “Doin Me” marked the beginning to ‘Mikey Mike’s Life on Earth,’ a singular album release that will be his sole body of work for his entire lifetime, released in volumes and complete only upon his death. Doin’ Me was supported by heavy hitters such as Zane Lowe and was picked up for a Cannon commercial sync and for the ending scene in SMILF’s first season’s finale. Also around this time, Mikey began his unorthodox methods of promotion, plastering bizarre billboards all around Los Angeles. The first poster to go up was his request for friends, “Lonely As Fuck. Wanna Be Friendz?” listed with a working phone number, inviting people to call him. Over the years, Mikey has posted several different billboards, each more bizarre than the last, generating over 30,000 phone calls and texts, as well as gaining attention from media such as Vice and NestHQ.
Continuing to promote his singular album, Mikey Mike will release the first official installment, the Life on Earth EP, November 2nd. The three-song project includes “Cooler,” a re-release of a feel-good single featured on KROQ’s, the hilariously endearing ballad “Cut My Hair,” and Mikey’s darkest and most aptly timed work yet, “Strange Times.” He twists pop melodies into different shades of deeply soulful often hilarious, and sometimes very emotional indie rock-guitar-rap. The EP will be released with a special pre-roll curated by Mikey Mike himself, with the help of Califari, with the intention of giving fans the full experience while listening to the music.
